WWE.com is reporting that Randy Orton suffered a cervical strain and cervical neuropraxia at the WWE SmackDown taping on Tuesday night in Providence, Rhode Island.
Orton worked a TV match with Alberto Del Rio and after Smackdown ended he then worked in a six-man tag-team match in the post show dark match. There was no injury angle done on the live show. No word on if the injury occurred during the TV taping or during the post-show dark match but it sounds like the dark match as they wouldn’t have sent him out there if they knew about the injury beforehand.
This is what WWE.com said:
At Tuesday night’s SmackDown television taping, Mr. Money in the Bank Randy Orton was injured during his match against World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio.
According to WWE medical personnel, the nine-time World Champion suffered a cervical strain and cervical neuropraxia.
As noted earlier, WWE is reporting that Randy Orton suffered a cervical strain and cervical neuropraxia at last night’s SmackDown tapings. Orton tweeted this morning:
“Hey, remember when I said don’t listen to the net? I’m fine. Del Rio’s kicks are hard as hell, and I caught one to the neck, part of the job”
When a fan asked him about it, this is what Orton replied with :
“No I mean every other site that runs the story and adds their 2 cents.”
